    A Statement from the family of Jules Bianchi

    Yokkaichi, Japan
    7 October 2014, 23.00hrs local/15.00hrs BST

    The following statement is provided by the family of Jules Bianchi, in conjunction with the Mie General Medical Center, and is distributed on their behalf by the Marussia F1 Team.

    “This is a very difficult time for our family, but the messages of support and affection for Jules from all over the world have been a source of great comfort to us. We would like to express our sincere appreciation.

    Jules remains in the Intensive Care Unit of the Mie General Medical Center in Yokkaichi. He has suffered a diffuse axonal injury and is in a critical but stable condition. The medical professionals at the hospital are providing the very best treatment and care and we are grateful for everything they have done for Jules since his accident.

    We are also grateful for the presence of Professor Gerard Saillant, President of the FIA Medical Commission, and Professor Alessandro Frati, Neurosurgeon of the University of Rome La Sapienza, who has travelled to Japan at the request of Scuderia Ferrari. They arrived at the hospital today and met with the medical personnel responsible for Jules’ treatment, in order to be fully informed of his clinical status so that they are able to advise the family. Professors Saillant and Frati acknowledge the excellent care being provided by the Mie General Medical Center and would like to thank their Japanese colleagues.

    The hospital will continue to monitor and treat Jules and further medical updates will be provided when appropriate.”

    I did some reading up on the condition, and unless it's minor it's going to be a very tough time for him moving forwards.

    Interesting post by @TorqueF1Blog about Roberto Guerrero, former F1, IndyCar and CART driver who suffered diffuse axonal injuries in 1987, and returned to racing 12 months later.

    As a mark of respect for Jules Bianchi, Marussia will only run one car in Russia this weekend.
    But, in a nice tribute, the team has built the car for Jules to stand in the garage for all sessions, complete with ‪#‎JB17‬ stickers.

    The number 17 will be retired from F1. Sometimes in sport, particularly in North America, jersey retirements are overdone - they were once only for players who died or were seriously injured during their careers, now any player of distinction for a team gets a number retirement.

    This is the right context and the right time. Bianchi's 17 was his choice. Just as Daijiro Kato and Shoya Tomizawa chose the numbers 74 and 48, which are now retired from MotoGP and Moto2 respectively - the series from which F1 adopted their current numbering system. Surely Marco Simoncelli's number 58 will be officially retired soon. Greg Moore's number 99 has not been used in Indycar since 2012, but it has been disappointingly unretired since the IndyCar/Champ Car unification of 2008.

    The number 17 will never again be carried on a Formula 1 car, and this is the right call from Jean Todt and the FIA, who so often seem like they get it all wrong elsewhere.

    Ferrari had picked Jules Bianchi as the man to replace Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari, former president Luca di Montezemolo has revealed.


    I am sure Ferraris comments about Bianchi are meant as a tribute and a sign of the high opinions they had for him but to me it seems a little tasteless to have released them now as though they are trying to claim a piece of him and jump on a bandwagon. I know he was on their young driver programme but it still feels a little wrong.
